MANILA — The Office of the Ombudsman has absolved former president Benigno Aquino III and Senator Antonio Trillanes IV of the treason and espionage charges filed against the two.

The said criminal complaints are relative to the alleged backchannel talks with China during the past administration over the tension in the West Philippine Sea due to disputed territories.

Through the 16-page resolution, the ombudsman said, no probable cause was found to prove the treason and espionage complaints.

The Ombudsman has explained that despite the territorial disputes, there is no war between the Philippines and China, therefore, no treason has been committed. — UNTV News & Rescue
